Our annual Edinburgh Science Festival and Generation Science schools tour is produced by the Edinburgh Science Foundation, an educational charity with a mission is to inspire, encourage and challenge people of all ages and backgrounds to explore and understand the world around them. Every year we provide inspirational experiences of science and technology to over 168,000 children and adults through these activites. We simply couldn’t achieve this without the support of our partners; the generous funders, sponsors, individuals, trusts and foundations who help us achieve our aims and reach our audience.

With thanks to all our supporters listed below:
